We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude.

~Cynthia Ozick~

We learn the magical lesson that making the most of what we have turns into more.

Say thank you, until you mean it.

Thank God, for life and the universe and for everyone and everything sent your way.

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.

It turns what we have into enough, and more.

It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity.

It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.

It turns problems into gifts, failures into successes, the unexpected into perfect timing , and mistakes into important events.

It can turn an existence into a real life, and disconnected situations into important and beneficial lessons.

Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.

Gratitude makes things right.

Gratitude turns negative energy into positive energy.

There is no situation or circumstances so small or so large that it is not susceptible to gratitude's power.

We can start with who we are and what we have TODAY, apply gratitude, then let it work it's magic.

Say thank you, until you mean it. If you say it long enough, you will believe it.

Today will shine the transforming light of gratitude on all the circumstances of my life.
